3 Fun, Easy & Cool Watermelon treat Recipes

Updated on May 31, 2011

There is no other fruit that expresses the greatness of the summer season that i know of like watermelon does. Especially, in Georgia, where you can find the watermelon capital of the world, Cordele.

This fruit is healthy! One of the healthiest of the summer season. It is more than 90% water. Which makes it a refreshing treat on a hot summer day.

A juicy firm fleshed watermelon that has been cooled in the fridge can not be beat at a picnic or any function where children and adults alike are romping around and having a blast. It is a great alternative to just plain ole water and candy or pre made frozen treats.

It is so simple the kids can take on the task of making their own frozen treats or punch with a little supervision.

Go ahead plan a picnic and add these watermelon treats to your party and see the compliments that you will receive or give to the kids for such a beautifully refreshing and easy healthy treat.

Caution if you are allergic to ragweed, it is more than likely that you can have an allergic reaction to watermelon. God forbid but it is possible so be aware!

Watermelon is also good if you are trying to stick to a healthy lifestyle or a diet on a day where too many other tempting treats may be present, so go ahead and pick up one today.
